Tooth staining can have a psychological and social impact on a patient. Staining has several intrinsic and extrinsic etiologic factors which can result in mild to severe staining causing an esthetic challenge for the patient and clinician. Different treatment modalities ranging from enamel microabrasion, bleaching to porcelain veneers and crowns exist and the choice depends on the underlying etiology and depth of the stain lesion. The purpose of this article is to review the etiologic factors and relevant treatment modalities for tooth staining.
